My Rating: 4.75 stars
One of the biggest surprises I’ve gotten these year! I mean, how many times do you love the second book better? Book 1 was at best intriguing and for a wierd reason I couldn’t stop reading, book 2? I gobbled it up in 1 day hah! 😋. I fell in love with Jackson and honestly, book 1 kept wishing Lee would meet someone else hehehe!
Check out Goodreads bio below, and trust me, ignore the Wild West bit, the real magic, is in Rae Carson’s writing, superb!

Like a River Glorious (The Gold Seer Trilogy #2) by Rae Carson
After a harrowing journey across the country, Leah Westfall and her friends have finally arrived in California and are ready to make their fortunes in the Gold Rush. Lee has a special advantage over the other new arrivals in California—she has the ability to sense gold, a secret known only by her handsome best friend Jefferson and her murdering uncle Hiram.
Lee and her friends have the chance to be the most prosperous settlers in California, but Hiram hasn’t given up trying to control Lee and her power. Sabotage and kidnapping are the least of what he’ll do to make sure Lee is his own. His mine is the deepest and darkest in the territory, and there Lee learns the full extent of her magical gift, the worst of her uncle, and the true strength of her friendships. To save everyone, she vows to destroy her uncle and the empire he is building—even at the cost of her own freedom.
Hope you enjoy this book as much as I did. If you have any suggestions on a book you’ve read and loved, please let me know 😊
